covid19, face mask

He did it AGAIN!

Just got in from work. Mom called, said she got a call from the school today while I was at work. Andrew is now suspended for two days total, for yelling at a teacher AGAIN... second time in around a month, meaning he can't go back to school until December 2 (Thanksgiving holiday starts THIS Monday, he'd be out anyway). Both me and my mom told him after the last incident, he wouldn't get the new computer and flat panel TV he wanted for his birthday and Xmas if it happened again. Being it HAS happened again, he'll be lucky to get a game for his PS3 now. Before hitting the shower this evening, I disconnected the router again... he'll get internet back January 1st... IF no more problems. Also, I had been letting him stay up as late as he wanted on Friday/Saturday nights, and school holidays, and 10pm on school nights. Now, he has a new policy I've put in place. 10pm EVERY night until summer vacation starts! His councelor is supposed to stop by tomorrow to talk to him.

He's going to mess around at this rate and get kicked out of regular school and put into a detention center if this keeps up. If he thinks I'm too strict, I can just imagine his reaction if he winds up in one of those places! It's like me, my mom, AND his councelor keep telling him... he's bringing all this on himself!

The more powerful meds aren't making a difference in his behavior at all. I'm starting to agree with mom... he acts exactly the same whether he is on medication or off. Seems the older he gets, the more he becomes like his mother!
